THE STORY:

UPWARDLY GLOBAL wrote -

When's the last time you got into a cab and found out your cab driver was really an engineer?

That's the story of Khader, an experienced hardware engineer from Benin who came here legally, to build a better life. When he first came to the U.S. without access to professional networks and knowledge of the U.S. job search process, he worked as a cab driver. After working with Upwardly Global, he secured a job in his field –he’s now a Management Consultant at BearingPoint. Khader is just one of the nearly 1000 skilled immigrants whose careers we have helped rebuild in the United States.

Upwardly Global, founded in 2000, is a national, award-winning nonprofit organization with offices in San Francisco, New York, and Chicago. Upwardly Global helps work-authorized, skilled immigrants rebuild their professional careers in the U.S. by providing professional job-search training and access to employers with global talent needs. Annually the organization coaches more than 600 professionals, engages hundreds of volunteers and partners with a growing list of more than 400 companies to assist skilled immigrants to re-enter their professional field . For more information about the organization, please visit www.upwardlyglobal.org.
